Investigation to Prevention: Data Security and Forensics with ADS

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity is more important than ever. As technology advances, so do the methods cybercriminals use to hack into systems and steal sensitive information. Businesses use data threat detection services, perimeter security, and more to keep confidential and proprietary data safe. When a cyber-attack occurs, it can have grave consequences for businesses. It’s estimated that a single cyberattack costs enterprises an average of $2.5 million, including the time it takes to get back up and running normally.

At Atlantic Data Security (ADS), our team of experts uses cybersecurity forensics best practices to investigate any cyberattack your company has suffered. We gather evidence and analyze it to determine how the attack was carried out and who was responsible, and we use that information to avoid future attacks.

How We Help

By identifying how an attack happened, our cybersecurity forensics team can determine what vulnerabilities were exploited and recommend ways to prevent that from happening in the future. It covers a variety of options designed to offer flexibility and customized data security plans based on your needs. That includes programs like more robust security measures, employee training on cybersecurity best practices, and managed security services to keep your systems one step ahead.

Once our team of experts works out the details, ADS will work with your company to tackle any weak points in your network perimeter and help uncover the source of the attack. Cybercriminals often use sophisticated techniques to hide their tracks and make themselves difficult to identify. However, our cyber defense forensics team is trained to investigate attacks and uncover evidence to track down the culprits. This can help hold cybercriminals accountable for their actions and deter future attacks from similar parties.

Our cyber forensics analysts can also help gather evidence for legal cases. For example, if a business suffers a cyberattack that results in financial losses or damages its reputation, it may need to take legal action against the responsible party. In these cases, our team of experts can help provide the evidence you need to win the case.

The Process

When a company suffers a cyberattack, the first step is always to identify that the attack occurred. Malicious attacks do not always shut down systems or interfere with processing. We can manage your network security, watching for unusual activity and detecting breaches. If we identify an attack, our team will gather evidence such as system logs, network traffic data, and other digital artifacts.

Then our cyber forensics analysts will begin to determine how the attack happened. We will also work to determine who was responsible and what data was compromised. This can involve reverse engineering malware, tracing network connections, and analyzing system logs. Once the analysis is complete, we provide your company with a full report and recommendations to prevent future attacks.

It’s important to note that cybersecurity forensics is a reactive measure. The best way to protect your data is with proactive measures so you never suffer a cyberattack. At ADS, we offer Data Security, Security Information and Event Management, and Data Loss Prevention services to do just that.

With ADS, our goal is to ensure no threats make it past our cybersecurity services. However, if it happens, our cyber defense forensics experts will gather all relevant data to prevent future attacks.

We’ve worked with businesses to establish data threat detection and prevention for over 30 years. We help businesses nationally with data loss prevention, log management, data security, and more. Contact us today to learn more.
